    I’m making a pair of gates to close off the front of my yard, and am making them in the same style as the existing ones elsewhere in the garden, horizontal bars and the diagonal are 25mm x 10mm flat bar, hinge end upright is 25mm square, latch side is 25mm x 15mm - they took some forging, maximum blast in the forge for over 20 mins.

    Nice work, I like your gate, I also like the sliding doors, I need some like that, but bigger.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I believe Rainfall Projects built some large sliding doors for a barn workshop, might have some ideas you could use.

    The far pair are open as far as they’ll go! - I’m thinking of making a pair of metal doors in the French workshop style

    Thanks @Yamhon , I can buy the rollers locally, or I could.

    Hang on, I just sat down to watch an 11 minute vid, then I finished on part 7 of 8.

    That was brilliant! You've given me far too many ideas.

    Who was that? Rainfall projects? How come these yanks have amazing huge workshops.

    Really enjoyed that, thanks.

    Can't recall how I first found his channel, he's a farmer so you can wait months for a new video from him as he's busy doing his day job, but he tends to do high-quality content.

    big workshops...it's cos they got plenty o room......and not taxed to death......
    good salaries, tools are cheap and so's materials........
    also, it's not frowned on to work on a hobby........
    Ozz has some big w/shops as well as France.......
    others I know not.......
    but getting ready to build at least a 200m2 workshop for myself......not in the UK tho........hahaha.....
